This free virtual CLE program will provide an overview of eviction defense for volunteer attorneys to assist tenants in New Jersey facing eviction in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Although lockouts are currently stayed by Executive Order, eviction complaints are still being filed against tenants, many of whom have suffered a hardship as a result of COVID-19. The court has announced plans to expand pre-trial settlement conferences where the parties may enter into agreements that include a judgment for the landlord and an eventual lockout. This program will provide a brief overview of New Jersey eviction law and what lawyers need to know to effectively assist tenants during these settlement conferences. The presence of an attorney to advocate for and advise tenants can be life changing.
